Involvements on Campus:

What I Like to Do on Weekends:

On weekends you'll typically find me in bed until noon-ish and then off to finish assignments, ending my day with a weekly game and movie night with the family.

My Favorite Class at Stetson:

My favorite class thus far has to be Philosophy of Law taught by Dr. Joshua Rust. His passion for philosophical thought and his ability to explain complex theories and their application to law furthered my desire to explore philosophy. It was an all-around interesting class that all prospective lawyers and philosophical thinkers should consider taking.

Advice to Prospective Students:

College is a time to expand your mind and your experiences. Choose courses that will challenge you and even consider expanding your horizons in student research, field trip opportunities, or even a new language.

Favorite Place on Campus:

The duPont-Ball Library upstairs patio, in the rain because it is so peaceful.
